WHAT: In a collaborative effort with the Carson City School District, the Nevada Department of Education will divide and pack more than 600 backpacks and books for the education of homeless children and youth across Nevada. The backpacks will be filled with school supplies and hygiene items, 3-ring binders and an assortment of books (4 different titles).

Feed the Children will ship the supplies to the McKinney-Vento Students in Transition Program where items will divide up, assemble and distribute the supplies to more than 17 districts throughout the state.

“Our district and employees are happy to host this activity,” said Mr. Richard Stokes, superintendent. “Our schools are extensions of our community, so providing for students in Nevada who lack a fixed, regular and adequate nighttime residence is really a part of who we all are.”

WHEN: Tuesday, March 19, 2019, 9:30 – 11: 30 a.m.

WHERE: Carson City School District, Operations Service Center, 398 N Richmond St. (Richmond and Telegraph St.).
